49ers WR Deebo Samuel has no regrets calling Eagles CB James Bradberry 'trash' in offseason

Deebo Samuel lives that line.

The San Francisco 49ers wide receiver isn't taking back harsh criticism of Philadelphia Eagles corner James Bradberry ahead of Sunday's showdown between the NFC's top two clubs.

"I don't regret nothing I said," Samuel said Monday when asked about offseason comments regarding Bradberry, per NBC Sports Bay Area.

Following the NFC Championship Game loss to Philly, Samuel called Bradberry "trash" during an appearance on the “I Am Athlete” podcast. The wide receiver doubled down on social media after Bradberry was called for a crucial penalty in the Super Bowl LVII loss.

The Niners spent the offseason suggesting they would have beaten the Eagles in the title game had Brock Purdy not been injured early.

On Monday, Samuel played a more toned-down message.

"I don't have any feelings right now, just see how it goes," Samuel said. "It's not about revenge. It's another game on the schedule and we're going to treat it like any other game."

That's athlete-speak ahead of a big contest. No other game is against a 10-1 defending NFC champion who could be in the way of spending a Super Bowl week on the field instead of on podcasts.

Get the popcorn ready.
